The one circled in red looks like a U-wing to me.

yep, sorry. That one is labeled, sort of if you hash through my half-assed notation system.

There was a U Wing like ship in the movie that had no wings to it I noticed.

I liked that the ship Finn and Rose used to land on the FO command ship was UWing-ish in the cockpit design and struck me as maybe in the same family, especially since the FO second officer called it a ďtroop transportĒ specifically.  Perhaps the Alliance/Resistanceís response to landing craft.  Would love to build one of those bad boys up.  Gotta get that book for the details.

There were a number of ships in the Rebel fleet that were some nice easter eggs.  The ones I found?

-Sphyrna Class Corvettes (seen on Rebels and in Rogue One (the Lightmaker ramming attack on the Star Destroyers)
-U-Wing is definitely in there (saw this first in the trailer shot of the Falcon and the fleet)
-VCX-100 - they sure do like plopping the Ghost into space battles now
-Kuat Drive Yards EF76 Nebulon-B Escort Frigate
-Lancer class pursuit ship (like the Shadowcaster from Rebels)
-Wookie Auzituck class gunship (first seen in Rebels, IIRC)
-Mon Calamari MC 75 (same model as Admiral Raddus's flagship in Rogue One, the Profundity)
-MG-100 Starfortress bombers

The Rebel troop transport definitely had me puzzled.  It looks like a U-Wing cockpit on top of a big box, almost like the main hold of the Eravana (Han Solo's freighter at the beginning of TFA).

People have noted that Han's TFA freighter does appear to be in the low center of the shot.

Also this dude on twitter and his commentators have done quite a bit of work ID-ing ships. My questions here are about ships they have not yet addressed.

The Colossus from Resistance is also supposed to be there...  Iím having a tough time pinpointing it specifically but itís a big ship.

As one of 8 people watching Resistance I really hope that's true. I love the look of that ship/base.

I had heard that bit about the Colossus, too, but I canít find it.  One person tried pointing it out over at SWNN, but it was a Starfortress bomber. 

Another Easter egg that I havenít heard referenced?  On Pasana there was a familiar creature dating back to ROTJ, and more recently the Jabbaís Palace playset.  Because I spotted a Jerba carrying a bunch of stuff at the festival site.

I caught it again Thursday night. I still like it, and having heard there could be a 3 hour long "director's cut" out there, I would totally geek out to see that!

Did my ears play a trick on me, or did Lando tell Jannah he is from the "Colt" system???  :D

The extended cut will reveal that Lando was also Force sensitive from his Psychic Readers Network days.

Cool, is that officially a jerba on Passana? The visual guide doesn't mention it. Theres a similar furry think on Kijimi. I cant really tell if those two are the same creatures though.

Oh no, please don't buy into that conspiracy theorist BS.  Someone on reddit started a rumor about some JJ Abrams cut, and that the studio stepped in to make drastic changes to the movie.  It's the same kind of nonsense that happened when DC movie fans started clamoring for a so-called "Snyder cut" of the Justice League movie.

I have a funny story about that relating to the GPS constellation!

Recently, SVN 38 of the GPS constellation was decommissioned.  When it was launched, the engineers had a tradition of having a copy of the Weekly World news around the ops floor, which always had an ad for Billy Dee's psychic hotline in it.  Due to all the moving parts and variables with a space launch, there's always some sort of delay (I've been working in GPS for nearly 12 years and I've never seen a launch NOT pushed for something), so one of the operators had said "What does Billy Dee say about this?"  That was when the nickname for that SV became "Billy Dee"!  One of the engineers sent a letter to Billy Dee Williams and he sent back a signed headshot wishing all the folks at the 2nd Space Ops Squadron good luck, and that photo was on the ops floor when we decommissioned SVN 38.

I wish I had known that story when I met Billy Dee Williams at Comic Con a couple of years ago.
